British Pewter > Plates, Dishes, Basins & Chargers
Export pewter basins are relatively abundant however no so in this condition. This Export example is in near mint condition with a very strong touch and beautiful hammered booge.
The 8 1/16" basin was made by Thomas and Townsend Compton, of London, working 1802-14. Thomas Compton was John Townsend's son-in-law and Townsend Compton, his grandson.
A super piece by one of the most prolific Exporters from London. The Townsend Dynasty.
